Fraser Anning slaps teenager after being hit over the head with egg

"Islamophobic" Australian Senator Fraser Anning who is being strongly castigated for holding Muslim immigration responsible for the New Zealand mosque shootings was egged by a teenager on Saturday, news.com.au reported.

A staffer for Senator Anning then separates the senator from the young man, while supporters of the senator tackle his attacker to the ground.

Police said the boy was arrested but was released without charge pending a further investigation.

At about 1.40pm (local time) a gunman entered the Al Noor Mosque in central Christchurch and opened fire, with reports at the time six people were killed and dozens more injured.

Anning who is a far-right independent senator elected in 2017, said the left wing and the media would claim the cause of the shooting to be lax gun laws, but he called this view "cliched nonsense".

"Today's shootings in Christchurch highlight the growing fears within our community both in Australia and New Zealand over the increasing Muslim presence". At the moment, there is also a fundraising page that has been set up to collect donations to help the boy with his legal fees and to acquire more eggs.

Australian Minister Scott Morrison said that Anning's conflation of violence and terrorism with immigration and Islam is "appalling" and has no place in the country's political culture.

He also is accused of trying to influence the player to provide misleading information to investigators. The NCAA's notice does not place any blame on Pastner nor name him in the report.

The senator also attacked the Prophet and blamed Muslim immigration for the massacre, Mr Shanmugam added in the Facebook post on Friday night.

"Worldwide, Muslims are killing people in the name of their faith on an industrial scale".

"Parliament, I'm sure, will express a very clear view about what he's had to say", Mr Morrison said.

His comments earned swift and blistering condemnation.

Mariam Veiszadeh, an Afghan-born Australian lawyer and anti-racist activist, has long used her Twitter account to document and discuss Islamophobia in Australia. "In no way does he represent our Australian friends".

A media adviser for Senator Anning told news.com.au yesterday there had been no backlash to the statement, but it only took minutes for social media to blow up in outrage.

"It is disgusting and has no place in the Australian Parliament and hopefully the voters will deal with this fellow in the most effective way".
